Which Glee Star Fainted On The Red Carpet?
Amber Riley who plays Mercedes on Glee took a fall last night (Tuesday) at the Academy screening of their hit Fox series held at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre on Tuesday in Hollywood.
She got very dizzy from all the photographers’ flashes. She said after fainting, “Hey guys, I’m okay 🙂 I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You’d think I’s be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes.“
She also thanked the photographers through Twitter for not taking pictures of her while she lay on the ground unconscious, “I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing.”
Fortunately, Amber was able to participate in the Glee panel held in front of Emmy voters.
Of course, an incident like that won’t go unquestioned in the media. Rumors went around that she may be, pregnant, diabetic, self-loathing, starving herself, but she put them all down.
She writes, “I love myself waaaay more than I like my career. I would never ever put myself in harm’s way to mirror any ‘image’. Come on ppl. Get a life. I did get a great laugh this morning reading all the BS though.”
Awe, yay Amber! It must have been so embarassing for her. But hey, not everyone can say I’ve fainted on the red carpet before. I’m glad she’s feeling better.
How would you feel if you fainted on the red carpet?
